Good place to work, but senior management is out of touch.

I have been working at Friedkin Companies full-time

Pros

Great benefits, smart co-workers and a culture of excellence.

Cons

Upper level management is all about cost cutting and the bottom line. Short staffing is common and seems to be preferred to the alternative.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reinvest in the areas the business depends on, and increase staffing to make the workload more manageable.

    I worked at Friedkin Companies

    Pros

    Friedkin offers outstanding Benefits package, a beautiful facility, and great associate programs. You also find a lot of tenured employees. Senior Management receives great incentives.

    Cons

    A lot of the tenured employees are complacent in their roles and are not adaptive to change; making new ideas and new technology extremely difficult to promote. Career advancement is limited unless; you search on your own and transfer out to other companies within Friedkin. It’s not in management's radar to promote or create career ladders within their departments. Job responsibilities increase and sometimes double, without reward or recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's a lot of top to bottom feedback, consider feedback from bottom to top; you'll be surprised to see how hard your bottom line works, while your top management cruises and gains all the benefits and recognition. Reward your tenured employees, and when they decide to leave take care of them, and thank them for their dedication and loyalty.

    I have been working at Friedkin Companies

    Pros

    The company really values its employees, and places a high value on ensuring that there is a strong balance between their work and family life. The facilities are amazing, the cafe has great food, there is onsite Starbucks, a fully stocked gym, and a beautiful "backyard" with stocked pond for fishing and walking, as well as basketball courts.

    Cons

    The company is growing at a rapid clip, perhaps a little too rapid for a handful of associates, who long for the "good old days" and struggle with the company's need to turn a profit and ensure those of us who like working here can continue into the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue what you are doing. Don't change a thing!!
